About Engineering Physics

If you can’t get enough of special relative theory, tangent planes, or Newtonian mechanics, you should consider checking out a major in Engineering Physics.

Physics is known as the most fundamental of all sciences: it encompasses both the life sciences and the physical sciences. Engineering is the application of science in the design, construction, analysis of machines, processes or works for practical purposes.

The Engineering Physics major at Ramapo is designed for students who like physics, have a strong aptitude for it, and are interested and excited by the applied or engineering aspects of it.

Ramapo

Engineering Physics offers you an unlimited scope of study and career opportunities in such areas as electronics, atomic, nuclear, and sub-nuclear physics, solid-state and low-temperature physics, optics, acoustics, relativity, quantum electronics, astrophysics, biophysics, and chemical physics, as well as a whole range of applied technology fields.
